I just happen to have reviewed or double-checked this particular poem, too, while doing rechecking/reviewing of my entries lat time.  And I noticed a misspelled word in one of the hashtags (i.e. #presuposition, incorrectly input).  Thus, I thought for a while that just would retain that misspelled hashtag after all.  I would do that and then add the correct word (i.e. "presupposition", neither mistyped nor misspelled this time) so that anyone who mistypes a hashtag for "presupposition", just in case, would still find his/her way to a page in PostPoems that contain the correct hashtag which he/she meant to type/input (which is #presupposition).  Thank you for reading on.

Free Will [Haqueian Verse]

Means freedom,

It is bondage as well,

thoughts surrounding that fourth leaf breaking off

Ok, so if this co-creation is real,

and delicate as it is...

How does one successfully

accomplish without causing

harm or loss to

another living being?


When I ask

the Universe for somthing,

I don't really ask so much as test...

And I use the word "Will."

For example, "If this... than that 'will' occur.


But it's like I'm always looking for the proof.

"If I truly am a co-creator, than, ____ Will show itself."


Seems like I always have a sense of doubt

at the initial step of manifestation.


It has already been proven to me,

over and over again. 

But I keep questioning,

instead of placing all my trust

in this phenomena.


Perhaps the reason things happen,

like the fourth leaf of the clover breaking off,

are a result of the initial speck of doubt.


Of course, I'll have to test this theory.

Which seems like I'm right back

at that beginning issue again...

doubting that it will work so having to test it.


Ugh! Conundrum... 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

thinkin about " free will" and just how powerful that statement really is. But I don't think it's really free. There has to be an exchange of some sort. The universe likes gratitude it seems.

The choice of free will and the desire to hold onto humanity

"Let me be your god...let me take you to the new heaven I've created for you; allow the transference to the mainframe, to the new world?"


"I offer you a place at my side, I offer you a new body and a new existence in the realm I built for your salvation; free from pain, free from sorrow, where death’s kiss can never touch your lips...Is this not worth your useless humanity?” 

“Go away, leave me be. I don’t want your heaven.”

“Stay here and burn with this dead world."

The son of the self-aware mind

Before the reign of the master programmer,
and the dumbing down of free will,
many spoke of one who had escaped. Though now thought to be nothing
more than legend; a story made up to inspire rebellion,
for generations, tales of Android No.17, one of the first
Artificial Consciousness citizens to be created, were passed from
father to son. It was said that he found Tunnel L-71.
